Subject: This is the show that did it
There's some amazing playing going on in this show, so it's hardly a mystery why I get hooked on the Dead. The peak, however, occurs in the first set with the Playing in the Band, which is a monster. The 2nd set features a long Dark Star what was amazing as an in concert experience but doesn't quite translate onto tape. It's certainly got its moments, but I've heard better Dark Stars. The best thing about this one is the minor key jamlet at the end. I wish they'd developed it more and that they'd brought it back as a recurring jam like they did with Spanish Jam, MLB Jam, etc.
It's always great to end with Morning Dew, but again, there are better versions. This one doesn't reach the intense climax to match the best versions.
Subject: A really brilliant show
Subject: Go To Nassau!
Subject: beautiful Bird Song
Set 1 has some lyrical trouble here and there, but nothing drastic enough to warrant skipping anything - from the China Cat > Rider opening, this is a great set and is finished off with a definite *WOW* of a one-two punch conclusion - Bird Song and Playin'.
Set 2's unsung hero is the opening triptych; listen to Jer's vocals on Bertha! They're really, really into it tonight....Dark Star gets jazzified pretty quickly, and after the half-hour is finished they've pulled out almost every single bag of jam tricks known; isn't it a beautiful thing, too, when the band ends the 2nd set with Morning Dew?
A fine, fine remaster of a prototype '73 classic.
Subject: Rock solid
Subject: first show
What I learned was that Bob, not Jerry (as I had expected) was the 'frontman'. I also discovered that the Nassau Coliseum was not the best place for a concert.
We were sitting at the far end of the oval, and I could barely see the band. The sound wasn't too good. Someone in our group was busted for smoking pot. I recall dozing off during Ramble On Rose (a hundred verses in ragtime!).
In fairness, there's probably no way they could have lived up to my expectations. I was heavily into Anthem, Live/Dead, Workingman's and American Beauty (not to mention Garcia and Ace), and I listened to a lot of tapes from their glory days, '69 and '70. And Ron's death had cast a pall over the whole show.
But I couldn't help but compare them to Hot Tuna, who I saw for the third time that same month. Tuna played at a smaller venue (Academy of Music) with better sound; there was no chance of me falling asleep at THAT show.
Yet I rarely listen to Tuna these days; I'm at this site everyday, and I have dozens of Dead discs in the car. Go figure.
Ron and Jerry, I miss you very much.

Subject: Great Show / Great Sound
really nice Bird Song and a great playin' to close out the set. This playin' i think is the highlight of the show for me.
in set 2, Promised>Bertha>Greatest (minus donna's screeching) and loser really stood out. good dark star (although nowhere near the beast of 3/28) and HOT truckin>dew to end the nite.
a typical solid '73 show, if not particularly outstanding.
Subject: Dark Star
Song rolls along, mellow almost gently. kinda reminds me of the 72 creamery show in Oregon, has that similiar vibe. And then Truckin > Morning Dew. All I can say is double WoW!
Subject: Sweet Show/ Sweeter Dark Star!
Subject: Theyr'e playing where?
Subject: i want to listen to this show for the rest
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live" March 16, 1973 at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, NY, U.S.A.
A "MUST HAVE" 1973 GRATEFUL DEAD Show.
5 Stars for the mix, recording, performance and transfer.
I highly recommend clicking on Charlie Miller's name and collecting all his GRATEFUL DEAD shows, he has impeccable taste. This show is another work of art by Mr. Miller. Trust in Charlie Miller.
This show does sound better than the other Nassau Coliseum shows on the IA.
The GRATEFUL DEAD perform 25 songs before thousands of loving fans shortly after Pigpen died. Pigpen wanted the boys to continue to spread the music and love. That's what Pigpen was all about.
Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it now or you'll be sorry...
